Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD Car Stereo New for 2011

Kenwood PS Subwoofers

This time of year is always an exciting time as manufacturers are beginning to ship the new units that we have been hearing about for a few months. Pioneer has been releasing information about their new audio/video receivers for a little while now, but they have just recently begun to ship. The anticipation from the press release to the time that we are actually using the unit is sometimes unbearable. With the new line of Pioneer audio/video products now shipping, the car audio industry is reaching a new level of sound quality and convenience in the car.

A prime example of a benchmark audio/video in-dash car stereo is the Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD. Out of the box, this unit gives you plenty of options for a top-notch audio system that will make all the other AV units out their jealous. To accomplish this, Pioneer has fine-tuned the equalizer from the previous model for an Easy EQ (EEQ) 8-band graphic equalizer. This allows the listener to adjust the sound quality with great accuracy. They have also incorporated a 24-bit D/A converter, Dolby Digital decoding, Linear PCM decoding, as well as DTS digital out. It is starting to sound like a Pioneer home receiver isn’t it? These audio improvements assist in the overall processing of audio, but really shine when you pop a DVD into the receiver. For complete audio equalization, try using the Pioneer CD-MC20 auto-tuning microphone.

One of the best parts of the AVH-P4300DVD is that is fully customizable to be a system that is just what you want. The benefit of this is that you aren’t paying for extra features that you don’t need or will never use. Some of these features include GPS navigation, satellite radio (SIRIUS and XM), HD Radio, Bluetooth, back-up camera, iPhone/iPod support, and steering wheel control. We look forward to this unit being one of the most popular car stereos in 2011.


Pioneer AVIC-U220: Add-on GPS Navigation for 2010 AVH Receivers

Pioneer AVH-P5200DVD

By Seth Wilde – Product Specialist

If you are like me, you are a “have it all” type of guy.   And when it comes to installing an aftermarket audio system, you need to make sure that you have the best products and you get them for the best price.   When you saw the current 2010 models of Pioneer AVH Audio/Video receivers (such as the Pioneer AVH-P5200DVD) get released, they seemed like the perfect media center for your car.  However, they were missing one major feature that prevented a lot of people from purchasing these advanced units.  They featured a bright and clear display.  Impressive audio processors and equalizer systems were built-in.  The bipod capabilities were smooth and integration was seamless.  Yet, they lacked GPS navigation.

With the Pioneer AVIC-U220, this problem has been fixed and the loyal Pioneer Electronics fans can breathe again.  This add-on module allows GPS navigation to be added to the Pioneer AVH car stereos for full and complete navigation.  The module attached directly to the rear of the stereo and can be mounted anywhere in the car.  It has a GPS antenna that can be mounted on the roof of the car and receives all the data from the satellites.   The Pioneer navigation system includes 12 million POIs (Points of Interest) that will lead you to local restaurants, banks, gas stations, and other popular locations.  Voice prompt and turn-by-turn guidance will make this module the driver’s best friend, while ensuring the eyes stay on the road and the hands on the steering while.  When future maps are available, the SD Card slot and USB input are easily accessible for quick updates.  One of the most impressive things about the Pioneer AVIC-U220 is the use of AVIC Feeds to log driving data, optimize fuel efficiency, upload personal points of interest, and other features.  Now, you and music lovers everywhere can have top-notch audio quality and the latest GPS navigation system!
